Fire Suppression Services for Schools, Universities & Educational Facilities 

Educational institutions are held to a high standard of care regardless of the age of the students involved. This includes daycares, K-12 schools, colleges, and adult learning centers, where students and parents have certain expectations when it comes to fire safety. United Fire Protection is the premier provider of fire suppression and protection services in the Tampa area, with over 25 years of specialized knowledge and experience. 

Call (407) 218-8348 to learn more or contact us online to schedule fire protection services for schools, universities, and educational facilities in the Tampa area. 


According to the National Fire Protection Association, between 2013 and 2017, fire departments attended an average of 3,320 structure fires in educational facilities each year. In addition to an average of 42 civilian injuries and one death, annual losses total $42 million dollars in property damages. The most common fire safety risks in educational facilities are:

Intentional Fires

Nearly 40% of school fires are intentionally set. Of these, almost 30% originate in a locker room or bathroom and over 65% occur between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., when these facilities are at maximum occupancy. 

Cooking Equipment

Approximately 30% percent of school fires originate in a kitchen or cooking area where there is a risk of high heat, grease, combustible materials, and open flames. 

Accidental Fires  

Playing with a heat source such as matches or a lighter is the next leading cause of school fires, at around 25%. These types of fires are also the leading cause of injuries, at around 30%, because those responsible for the fire often come in direct contact with the source. 

Heating Equipment

Just over 10% of school fires are caused by heating equipment, including furnaces and boilers, followed by a small rate of electrical fires due to improper wiring or malfunctioning equipment. 


Every precaution must be taken to ensure the safety and well-being of students and faculty and minimize the risk of injury, death, or property loss from a fire. The best means of fire prevention and suppression is to arrange for comprehensive fire protection services from United Fire Protection, including:

Fire Extinguishers

Fire extinguishers are portable and easy to operate, and they can act as the first line of defense in the event of an emergency. Our fire extinguisher services include:

Class ABC extinguishers and wet chemical fire extinguishers in commercial cooking and kitchen areas, add another layer of protection against the risks associated with a fire. 

Fire Suppression 

We offer an array of fire suppression systems, including wet chemical, dry chemical, clean agents, and more, to meet the unique needs of educational facilities. 

Emergency and Exit Lighting

Emergency and exit lighting are vital components of any emergency evacuation strategy and can light the way and save lives in the event of a power outage or smoke. 

Evacuation Planning and Routing

We can review the existing evacuation plan at your facility and make recommendations for any necessary changes to maximize safety and efficiency.
